Art Alive

Sat, Oct 2, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience taking place every Thursday and Saturday. Each session, a practicing artist or artist educator focuses on a work on view in MAD’s current exhibitions, leading hands-on activities and engaging discussions geared towards an intergenerational audience.

This Saturday, Artist Educator Angelica Pomar will be on the floor of Craft Front and Center facilitating a project inspired by Josh Faught’s Forget Where I am, While I am, While I’m Going (2017). Participants will explore their perception of self by appropriating elements from magazines, newspaper clippings, assorted fabrics, and decorative materials to create a mixed-media self-portrait.

Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 11 am and 2 pm and stay as long as they like. Art Alive is free with admission to MAD. The program is offered in accordance with the museum’s safe social-distancing practices and visitors must be masked at all times.
